Random stuff

Today I want to post some pictures that are just, well, random stuff I photographed over the last couple of weeks and months.

That's the newly built Aran Island ferry car park in Doolin Co Clare. The storm threw a few pebbles on it... and a few big rocks. They definitely have some cleaning up to do before the tourist season starts. 

A nice sunset over the Atlantic, seen from the Sky road in Clifden. I put the Wild Atlantic Way sign in the foreground, it just lined up nicely with the sun. The company who designed the signs for the Wild Atlantic Way saw the photo on Twitter, liked it, and bought it off me. 

Bluebells in Portumna forest park. That place is magical! I'm not that great when it comes to photographing plants and flowers, and I was about to give up on the bluebells, when I got this shot. Actually, I was on my way back to the car when the light changed and scene came to live. 

This is another unplanned shot. I needed some pictures for a wildlife competition, so I was driving around with my long telephoto lens on the camera, looking for birds or basically any kind of wildlife. I didn't find any, or maybe they were scared of me, or maybe I'm not a wildlife shooter. Anyway, I saw the sun going down behind the ruin of Tyrone House, which is just a short drive from our house, and since I had the telephoto lens on the camera, I just tried to get a shot. And I was lucky! I didn't win anything in that wildlife competition though...

And to finish today's post, another shot against the sun. I love shooting against the sun! Ok, having a camera that can handle that kind of light certainly helps:) I took this image in Bellharbour Co. Clare, posted it on Facebook, someone recognised the field, and passed the photo on to the farmer. He liked it as well! He gave me a big bag of salad for it!:} The field in the picture belongs to the Fahy Farm from Bellharbour, they supply restaurants all along the west coast with fresh salads. 

That's it for today, another update next week, take care

For Arthur!
